In the second episode commissioned by the Participation Sisters, we talk about…ourselves? They’ve commissioned an episode called The GymCastic Podcast: Where We’ve been and Where We’re Heading, saying very nice things like: “GymCastic has given gym fans everything we always knew we always wanted but weren’t getting from major news outlets: Weekly in-depth updates, impassioned and informed stances on both serious and trivial topics, interviews with past and former athletes and coaches, Rage-O-Meters, and more. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, GymCastic is ushering in a new paradigm for gymnastics reportage — authentic, humorous, and hard-hitting. Many of us are curious about the evolution of the podcast. We’d love you to give us a “behind the scenes” look into how you got started, and where you hope to be in the future.”
We answer questions like
- How did you get started?
- How did Jess meet Spencer?
- How do/did you juggle your day job with your podcast?
- What was your first interview like, and how has your interview style evolved based on lessons learned?
- How did you fall in LOVE with gymnastics?
- What has been the most challenging interview?
- If you had an unlimited budget, what would GymCastic evolve into?
- What does your “realistic” road map look like for the future?
If you like this episode you will also enjoy, Episode 100. This is the shamelessly vainglorious episode where we answer all of your questions about our irrelevant personal lives, and the origins of show, includes hosts Dr. Uncle Tim, Blythe, Evan and Jessica.
